Pilots Picket affects NBA Teams

There's a small piece of news involving the pilots who fly NBA teams from city to city. On the New York news this morning they showed pilots in a picket line outside MSG, protesting their current contracts. According to People's Weekly World:
NEW YORK (PAI)--After 3 years of fruitless talks, Champion Air pilots will take to the informational picket lines on Jan. 15 at Madison Square Garden in New York, Airline Pilot reported. The National Mediation Board, which oversees airline labor-management relations, has yet to respond to Champion management’s demand that their talks recess--or order the airline to bargain. Champion, a charter carrier, flies 13 NBA teams to games, including the Washington Wizards, who play the New York Knicks at the Garden that night.

It's interesting that they chose to picket at the Knicks game. Things could get real messy if NY fans also start to picket the Knicks for keeping Isiah as their head coach.
